Welcome to the website of the South Yorkshire Centre of The Caravan Club. Here you will find all the information that you require, to plan, book and enjoy your rallying with the South Yorkshire Centre.
If you have a caravan (or motorhome) and want to make full use of it to make the most of your investment, carry on reading!!!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic and sometimes whacky group of caravanners who “rally” throughout the year. YES you can use your caravan in the winter or without an electric hook up!
You can always be sure of a warm & friendly welcome from our members.
If you need any further information, there are several links on the website or via Tim Webb our webmaster. (Who does an excellent job of keeping the website up to date and fresh looking).
Finally Lesley & I would like to wish you a good 2016 caravanning season and hope to meet you on a rally field in the near future.
The Caravan Club
Centre Website Competition
The Centre websites were of a very high standard and were given considerable praise. It had been difficult to choose and the marking was very close.
Websites were chosen by the use of The Club logo and also:
▪ Appearance (presentation, graphics, images)
▪ Centre information (covering introduction, committee information, chairman’s letter)
▪ East of navigation (clear headings, ability to return to home page)
▪ Appeal (including welcome to new members)
▪ Activities (programmes, descriptions, booking details).
I am delighted to let you know the winning Centre websites are:
1st Derbyshire Centre
2nd South Yorkshire Centre
3rd Buckinghamshire Centre
Thank you to everyone who has contributed articles and photos to the website. We are Winners!

Spacing at Rallies
Rally Marshals have been reminded of the Caravan Clubs guidelines for spacing and this may mean that some rally limits have had to be changed. Please be understanding of any changes which have been made for your safety.
Your rally marshals will have set out the spacing on rallies according to the rules, but please observe the following guidelines to make their job easier and keep everyone safe.
A minimum spacing between facing walls of adjacent motorhomes and caravans (the unit) of 6 metres is required. Where an awning or pup tent is placed to extend the width of the unit, the minimum 6 metres starts from this wider point NOT the unit wall.
A car can be placed within this space but a 3 meter clear space should be adhered to.
The 6 metre spacing also applies between units and buildings or structures.
Emergency vehicles should also be able to secure access at all times to within 90 metres of any unit on the site.
To help space these requirements we suggest for pegging out, 12 paces between units and 17 paces between rows from the front corner to front corner gap.
